Went to church with Jack back in the seventies. Always kept his car lookin new and always would record his gas mileage. One year he pulled his camper up to Nazarene Acres campground and he, Dean Porter and I slept in it. In the middle of the week of camp meeting, he decided to up and go home. Left Dean and I with no place to stay.

So sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. I have many memories of growing up next door to Jack. I remember most of all the pigeons he had as pets.
